  • Well preserved slice of history. Interesting displays and I like that the tour was self-guided so I could go at my own pace. Cost is free but there is an opportunity to donate if you like. Gift shop has some great things to buy.
  • Very interesting place to visit. Lots of very old history that is well explained. Absolutely free admission which is amazing. Good exhibits inside as well as good information outside. You can get right next to the actual ruins and walk among them.
